Granny Rhombus Tutorial

This is my first tutorial. Go easy with me.

Granny Rhombus

Start with a slip knot and chain 3. Join with a slip stitch to make a small circle. (Just the same as a granny square start.)


Chain 4 then work one double treble (UK) crochet into the ring. Chain 1.


Work 2 double treble crochets (first corner). Chain 1.


Work 2 treble crochet, chain 1 then 2 more trebles (second corner). Chain 1. Work 2 double trebles, chain 1, 2 double trebles (third corner), chain 1 then the second corner again, chain 1. Now join to the top of the first chain 4 with a slip stitch.


Fasten off.


Join the next colour in any chain 1 space. I started in the space before the first corner.


Work 3 trebles in the spaces on the sides and the corner group of stitches in each corner.


You can see it more clearly in the picture below.


There you have it - a granny rhombus. If your pointy corners curl up slightly chain 2 instead of chain 1 to overcome this.


Now how can I incorporate these into my current granny blanket?


The following tutorial is for Vicky and Anne who wanted to know how to crochet a granny rectangle.


Welcome to my new follower. I hope you enjoy visiting from time to time.
